mailers in march, next month, and will be conducting a number of educational efforts to make sure we reach all business customers. as we get closer to the delivery scheduled change in in august, we will be publishing information in post offices, putting it online and other customer contact to make sure our residential customers know. let me conclude with a couple of thoughts. this announcement today is just one part of a much larger strategy to return the postal service to long-term financial stability. the plans saves $2 billion annually, that we have a $20 billion gap to close. we are striving to raise revenues, reduce costs and gain efficiencies throughout the entire organization and making this change to our delivery schedule is a big-ticket item and simply too big of a cost savings to ignore. in fact, i would strongly argue it would be irresponsible for the postal service not to pursue this course. second, we are implementing this approach to improve our overall business performance. there is a strong and growing demand for our package service and we need to meet that over the coming
for public education as to how you should be doing these things. if you join the nra and go to one of the 80,000 trainers you get that. there are a lot of people that aren't nra members. the public education campaign on the safety of firearms would be great. we would love to support it. >> first of all, i would like to get the signup sheet for the field trip for the gun show. [laughter] >> i'll tell you what, the next time they have the gun show, i'll have a signup sheet. if anybody wants to go i'll take them. i can't get you in for free. >> sometimes so you a little bit of an expense. [laughter] >> there's been a lot of talk about whether this is different. and it's a political question not an ideological question. do you think this time is different? and if it is, it doesn't seem that the nra has changed in any way the positions on what is acceptable or not acceptable to reflect that. i have another question. i'll let you answer that one. >> sure. i think that our opponents hope this is different in the sense they hope they can use a motion to achieve an antifirearm agenda they haven't bee
to me. she was great. she is articulate, very well educated, did some wonderful things, knew how to handle the power of male egos. but the press would not give her the same accolades, the general media would not give for this and accolades, not because she was competent, but because of her political ideology. there is some dispute bi -- skewed bias rating hillary clinton for some of the wrong things. host: on twitter -- "the washington post" adds this as far as analysis of her time in office -- "many of clinton's successes appeared to be due largely to her personal popularity and famous work ethics, attributes that were on display in her final days in office." nevada. caller: i would like to make a few comments about hillary clinton. i think the only reason she ever had her job was because of her husband, bill. she did exactly what she has been told to do by the president's, and a lot of us are not on tune with president obama's schedule, especially this benghazi deal. whenever a person throws her hands up in the air and is not want to admit to any responsibility of a job done po

and strong supporter of catholic education, i once again this year introduced a resolution honoring catholic schools. h.res. 46 expresses support for the vital contributions of the thousands of calt lick elementary and secondary schools -- catholic elementary and secondary schools in the united states and the key role they play in promoting and ensuring a brighter, stronger future for our nation. i'd like to thank the 28 members who co-sponsored this bipartisan resolution with me. since 1974 the national catholic education association, the united states conference of catholic bishops have organized and planned national catholic schools week. this year's theme, catholic schools raise the standards highlights recent initiatives undertaken by catholic schools across the country to strengthen the already exemplary standards. america's catholic schools produce graduates with the schools and integrity needed by our businesses, governments, and communities emphasizing a well-rounded educational experience in instilling the values of giving back to community and helping others. nearly every catholic
've never seen someone so emotional what they're testifying. a man 40 years he quit because it was education malpractice he said in the schools. >> alisyn: that that was peggy the group for americans for prosperity, a hearing in texas over the controversial school curriculum used by about three quarters of the state and we're hearing more compelling testimony from texas educators who call some of these lessons down right anti-american. let's listen what they told texas lawmakers. >> here is the lesson, to ask our american students to design a communist flag, imagine a new socialist nation is creating a flag and you've been put in charge based on radical ideas aka socialism, marxism, and indoctrinating our children with pro islam lesso lessons. >> i resigned as soon as i could find another job, i felt i was abetting a crime of civil rights and human rights. and teaching was like a surgeon forced to use filthy scalpels, as long as i cooperated i was guilty of malpractice. before i'd been a slave i'd be buried in my grave and go home to my lord and be -- (applause) >> well, republicans from te
-time work since. college-educated, 20 years of experience. i live in san francisco in an area where did score -- where discrimination based on age is encouraged. discrimination based on race is encouraged as well. it is a shame. my senators, basically if you are not from a protected class, you do not exist. these people -- i saved up a lot of money over my life and had planned on retiring at 65, like everyone else, but i spent a lot of my retirement just trying to survive, which is a shame. host: was your retirement 401k? personal savings? how did it break down? caller: it was a mix. host:-, n.c., joe is joining us on the independent line. -- ash, n.c., joe is joining us on the independent line. caller: all of a sudden everything fell apart several years ago. i could have retired, but i saw the writing on the wall, businesses started falling down and everyone who has a retirement, god bless you, but it is so hard. i feel bad for the grandchildren who they all say are not going to make it. it is terrible, this country has put a hole in front of everything else. they have got to quit doin
platform, education, flexible working hours, closing loopholes in the tax code. things that are broadly popular across the aisle s. that the republican approach to emphasize things that are popular in their party platform and just not talk about the other stuff? >> well, i think that even uttering the phrase working moms is progress for this republican party. >> right. >> but what matters is the details behind it. and whether you're talking about big cuts in discretionary spending that might include education spending, health care spending, child care, et cetera, when you talk about committing federal resources, tax money, to these kinds of problems, that's where the republicans go on a different direction and most of the american people at a time where they're worried about the future, where they're worried about the state of the economy, where they really frankly all that optimistic about the private economy providing them jobs, they're going to look to the government for help. if the republicans continue to be philosophically opposed to that idea which they are at root then all kinds
there are three legs in the education, and he's right, the third parents, but why should you punish the child? >> bill: he believes that the parents can make the kid perform better. guest: but it starts with the parent to be an involved parent, you were with an educator. >> bill: now have it's the theoretical many black and white. they get a 30% cut guest: that's different han penalizing the child's grades. >> bill: the child is going to get penalized no matter what. guest: what the state of tennessee is putting a bulls eye on the child's back. >> bill: and you disagree with it? guest: i disagree, there are abusive parents looking for any excuse to beat a kid. and there are kids who suffer from things like depression, or who are being bullied. >> bill: you are not going to change your mind like you did a few minutes ago, right? guest: it was about homosexuality, where they were separating the two of them. and the law states >> bill: you clarified, and if people change their mind, good. last word guest: here's what's prepost russ, he has three kids, two doing well and one isn't, and you still
. it's appropriate i do this at georgetown. as the product of jesuit education, as a catholic and as a beneficiary over the years of your outstanding faculty and staff and your important policy contributions that this university has made in a number of areas that affect people of this country. i'm truly honored to have this opportunity today. i've had a deep and abiding respect for georgetown throughout the almost 40 to 50 years that i've been involved in public service. and i have a deep respect for the generation of leaders that have gone forward from this campus to serve our nation. i just had the opportunity to meet with your cadets. some of the cadets in the rotc program. as someone who went through the rotc program at santa clara university and then ultimately served two years in the army, i can tell you that i have tremendous admiration for those that have made the decision to serve this country in uniform. the talents of these men and women and the innovative programs at georgetown's new institute of women, peace and security underscore for me the university's leadersh
problems and provide assistance. frankly, we also need to educate the force. you have to have peers who are working alongside of you who can identify those problems. someone looks like they have problems, they are having a difficult time, to identify that and make sure that that person gets the help they need. it is like everything else. all of us need to be aware -- all of us need to be a part of the answer to be able to make sure that doesn't happen. but this is something that -- there is no silver bullet. there is no silver bullet here. i wish there was. it means we have to operate on every front to do with this. -- deal with this. we have to be able to make sure that we deployed people in a rational basis so they are deployed into a combat area, but then have an amount of time that they can get their lives back together again. and do it rationally. that has to be done. we have to provide the support system, the health care system, be able to educate the force, to understand and to recognize those kinds of problems. all of that needs to be done if we're to address this. most importan
happens and your mom is old and dies and you take on that and no other education, it's kind of hard to get that person to step outside of the life and so for me that's the interesting component. now, is me being able to step in to the people's lives and can i rationalize what they do? it's hard because i have this greater knowledge but for them they live in a very insular environment and that insular environment is one that dictates to make a living and put food in their mouth and just what they're doing and kind of the problem that we have here. there's a demand in the united states for the drugs and there's a demand over there for them to survive and so that's the big picture. >> well, you know, we mentioned drugs and weapons. but what about exotic animals? how big is that industry and how can toure get a dragon? >> i can't help him facilitate anything illegal. >> come on. >> talk to him after the show. >> yeah right. okay. i mean, the thing is, i didn't realize how big the illegal animal trade is but the crime syndicates just as big if not bigger than the biggest drug syndicates in the
, moe children will be sufficiently educated. so if the teachers are profiting, i don't see the problem. >> you favor the authorities reaching out and grabbing hold of a piece of private enterprise and nationalizing. >> of course, anything that its liberal i'm for. also the issue of homework. this issue would copyright homework. >> i'm very much against that. what do people have rights to? the children doing their homework. create these wonderful projects. the school gets to own it? that doesn't make sense. >> where do you stand? >> i think this is a great area because we're talking about children here and are the parents going to agree? we're moving into a technological age and kids are creating apps at school and then sell it to facebook for a couple million dollars because of what they learned at school? i don't think that's a bad thing necessarily. >> there's nothing wrong with that. >> the problem is our teacher and parents and students collaborating to create things at school, and then profit off of it -- >> so what i they are? >> i think we have to distinguish that from the schoo
to educate the homeowners about that so they don't become a victim in the first place but a lot of people lose their homes in this situation. >> host: inspector general for t.a.r.p.. we have a question about the teeth that you cannot this enforcement. ken 877-sig-2009 fired the pay czar? getting back to the executive pay of the treasury signs of, what can sigtarp do? >> guest: we make recommendations and those have to be dealt with. we also report to congress so we send these reports to congress and they helped to put it in their but we have a number of recommendations that are not implemented and the need to be implemented and this is one example that shows how bad it can be if treasury does not implement the recommendations and so i am looking forward to a new secretary of treasury coming in to talk about our unimplemented recommendations and changes that can be made, and we will not give up. we are going to look at 2013 and we are not going to stop because ultimately we are here to protect taxpayers. that is our job. >> host: democrats line. hello. >> caller: hello. how are you. i was
woman shot in the head by the taliban for supporting girls education. her name is malala yousufzai. she was on her way home last october from school when two men asked her by name and shot her in the head and neck. despite surgery and months of rehabilitation the teenage activist has not given up. >> all of them have prayed for me and because of these prayers and because of these prayers god has given me this new life and this is the 2nd life. this is a new life and i -- second life. this is a new life and i want to serve. i want to serve the people and i want every girl, every child, to be educated. >> wow, she's got an incredible spirit. malala made the short list for time magazine's person of the year in 2012. she writes a blog about life under the taliban in pakistan. her shooting led to national outrage and attention to the struggle for women's rights. >>> tonight on the news edge video that's hard to watch and impossible to forget, why police charged a maryland caregiver with abuse after fding this video on youtube. >> and nurses meet with the d.c. council to save their overwhelme
to come to the country, to escape and get an education and level playing field can transform lives. escaping conflict and hardship is one thing, picking a home is another. we are a country that embres justice, we reward fairness, we are a nation of laws. the poorest of the poor has the sametanding in court as the richest of the rich. we believe in the even application of the law because law provides order, structure, predictability and security. and what we cannot become is a nation where the law is enforced selectively or not at all. what we cannot become, mr. chairman, where laws are applied to some of the people some of the time. the president from time to time, mr. chairman, sayshat he want a country where everyone plays by the same rules. with respect, they aren't called rules in this country, they're called laws. anea of us takes an oath to enforce them, including those with which we may disagree. because when theaw was ignored or applied in an uneven way, we see erosion of the foundation upon which this republic was built. and make no mistake, mr. chairman, as surely as one
are important, education and infrastructure of the health and human service needs. so medicaid will need to have some flexibility, much of the software going to watch as we go forward. let me just finish by ending where i started. we need to address the rising cost of health care. i do think the affordable care act does that. i think we provided an opportunity with our health care exchange in utah as a model based on good principles that allows businesses to continue to provide the benefit and help with competitive forces and consumer control to, in fact, have an impact on the rising cost of health care. it may be imperfect but it's a step i think in the right direction. again, the fundamental position that i'm taking and we are taking in utah is free market works if we allow but it takes politicians like myself and others out there to be disciplined and to give time for the marketplace to work. we sometimes are so anxious to fix a problem that we don't let the marketplace make the adjustments that are necessary to get the right outcome. and again as i said, if we want the best quality product,
lived, when you think about the american dream, better education, student debt is an all time high. we have seen the housing bubble burst and better job and unemployment is so high. for adults to be less optimistic than their children may make sense. >> my parents lived through the great depression and all reminded me of that and the difficult times. it made a difference in my life. take a look at this. the next gallup poll, will your kids be better off than you, they are more cautious? >> they just lived through one of the worst recessions we've ever had and we are in the worst of the recoveries we've ever had. in most recent memory they are facing unemployment and wealth is down the stock market is up so there are reasons for optimism but adults in recent memory have so many things that have been going bad, it's tough to be optimistic. >> gregg: throw the next one up. i think it is interesting. it breaks down among gender. look at this. actually better life, homes, better education, girls are more optimistic than boys? >> that is very interesting. we have seen women and girls make tr
on marriage that people pay attention. he is able to use the bully pulpit to help educate americans. i've already heard from people today who were not even aware of the ban on the boy scouts having openly gay leaders and members. so i think just from an educational perspective and the certainty of his answer when you saw, when asked it was an immediate yes, no hesitation in any way whatsoever. and i think the american people see that and take that to heart. >> when you listen to staunch conservatives like santorum and rick perry, you have to ask the question, will lifting the ban on gays destroy scouting? they believe it will. >> well, you know, if something was destroyed every time rick perry or rick santorum said that it was going to be destroyed by some cause or action, the planet would be destroyed i think at this point. >> well, why does scouting ban gays? why have they in the past? >> thing has been a real misunderstanding that by banning gay people, they're protecting things from adults with inappropriate sexual activity, when the statement and the facts actually point to someth
that will talk about issues that don't have to do with the budget. immigration, education, health care. cantor is joining a growing list of republicans who are trying to rebrand the party. >> we have not explained why we take the positions that we do. and i think that's one of the lessons learned from this past election. i think that where we have a lot of room to grow as a party, as conservatives is to explain again why we're for the kind of fiscal discipline that we're for. what is the reality and how are we going to help people? >> we had to show our ideas are better at fighting poverty. how our ideas are better at solving health care. how our ideas are better at solving the problems people are experiencing in their daily lives. >> we have to get the republican party back on track. we do that by winning the argument of ideas. >> let's bring in our tuesday gaggle. perry bacon jr., solinda lake and john feehery. john, i'll start with you. this is, i assume, you like hearing the words you are hearing from whether it's eric cantor, paul ryan or what we used there with bobby jindal. the question
or education or clean energy, not to mention the growth of the entire economy should be in jeopardy because folks in washington couldn't come together. >> all right, the cbo estimated today in the fiscal 2013 budget $850 billion will be the deficit and we looked at the charts. people will argue, probably the man here, that it's going to be down in the long term because of increased revenues, economic growth, sequester, higher taxes. but kimberly, if you look to 2013, it shoots back up. how can the president hold a press conference when he talks about cuts using the word smaller. >> there's so much shrinkage. the problem is the middle class is the working poor. that's what's the norm. people are so used to it now they don't realize it should be fixed. we could focus on cutting back on spending, thinking about how to stimulate jobs and the economy. we're so used to the stagnation, it's become acceptable and people aren't critical enough to say there's a better way to do this and a smarter financial way to make sense. >> is this the new normal? before we get to that, the white house scrambled
how to govern obesity in the homes. how about more physical education, i have one who needs to run around several times a day. how about parent who is think that diet soda is not the way to go? i prefer my kids to drink the soda and brush their teeth, instead of drrching diet sodasm i think this poll is like americans, parents are feeling an assault on personal freedom and how they raise their family, how they live their lives. >> another number i thought was interesting, only 26% of people in this poll say they trusted the federal government to do the right thing. only a quarter of americans. >> that's because, when you go to 2011 and see that seven months was dedicated to arguing about the debt ceiling. the debt ceiling, which does not one thing to add to the budget deficit. not one nickel of spenning, it's agreeing to pay the bill. we waited seven months and threaten ord credit rating. the american people are sick of that. they want action. they want their taxes low, as we just saw happen reinly in avoiding the fiscal cliff -- which came as i might add through bipartisanship. th
together then we cannot only reduce our deficit but we can continue to invest in things like education and research and development nat are going to help us grow. >> more spending. >> and when a guy like obama uses the word invest it means more government spending. he is not stopping trying to raise taxes and when he is talking about closing loopholes and deductions, that's something we all were talking about on the right, conservatives, republicans, as part of tax reform but that was in lieu of raising raising the top rate. he said i raised the top rate and now i want to close loopholes and deductions. so this is all ways of trying to get at the top rate. but remember, that's not where the real money is. it's with the middle class and he is coming to raise taxes on you. >> loopholes could be the mortgage interest deduction. that would generate a lot of money. >> yes. special lie the middle class. >> live it there. thanks for joining us. >> if you a ask harry reid, americans don't believe in spending cuts. >> the american people are on our side. the american people don't believe in thi
or their nuclear weapons plan in it, and they're unfortunately not so much about educating anybody on serious issues that we face. so from that perspective senator hagel's demeanor was entirely understandable, and i can't even begin to imagine how incredibly it mustfrustrating it must have been for him. heather hurlburt and david schuster. be will he be confirmed? >> he'll be confirmed. >> john: welcome back to "viewpoint." and its time for the thing of the day. tonight's thing is the unrequited love of the day. in the interest of dr. phil part of which aired today. a man admitted that he loved manti teo. if you're looking for someone to love you back, maybe don't pretend to be a girl for two years. it might lead to unpleasantness. >>> and speaking of un unpleasanten. the war is breaking out own immigration war between tea party extremists and republicans who like getting re-elected because they're in states with growing latino populations. quote. any action in the senate to approve such a reform effort is likely to kick off an interparty war in the house. that will make the battles in the g.
with a meat ax and cutting programs like infrastructure, education, r&d. >> we're not cutting where the money is. >> and we're not cutting where the money is. nobody really wants -- i don't want to cut medicare, but we've got to deal with medicare if we're going to get this budget deficit under control. but frankly, look. the president and the republicans are playing their cards close to their vests. republicans are saying no new revenue. democrats are saying no new cuts on entitlements. >> can i just jump in and say, though, cuts are important. you're going to need them eventually, but it's better and smarter to do it when you're back on your historic trend growth which in this country is more like 3% a year versus the 2% that we're in. and another thing on taxes, one thing that amazes me that really hasn't sunk in yet is that tax hikes don't necessarily cut growth. i mean, just look at what happened in the clinton era. or look at all the tax cuts we've done actually in the post world war ii era, we have done 18 tax hikes in order to reduce deficit. each time the market has risen. so i just
, as you said, it for younger americans. he spoke a lot about education. he even praised san francisco's education system and the schools there, which is perhaps not the most obvious place for somebody as conservative as eric cantor. this is a speech, joe, that he tested out in davos at the world economic forum to try and give, as you've been talking about, the republican party a kind of more open, friendlier edge not just to be talking about number crunching, not just to be talking about deficit reduction because he feels and people in the party feel that that's given them the image of people that are just concerned about the numbers, about the bottom line, about those issues. naturally they need to be addressing issues that families are concerned about, infrastructure and immigration as well. there wasn't a whole lot new in terms of radical policy proposals. and i hate to say this. i kind of agree with dana milbank on the optics of it. he's not the easiest sunny guy. he's not a paul ryan guy who finds it easy to smile and connect with people. he does come across as a little stiff. he
